Known to many as the Fiddler for Peace, Kailin believes firmly in the power of music and love to affect profound and positive changes in the world. He was trained in Austria at the Musikhochschule Wien and was the recipient of the Daniel Pearl Memorial Violin in 2004 for his efforts in building cultural bridges through music.
In 2013, Kailin returned to his native Singapore after spending twenty years living, traveling and playing in Europe and America. Since then, he has been actively sharing his gift as a music director and composer with theatre and dance groups like Checkpoint Theatre, Flamenco Sin Fronteras, Maya Dance Theatre and In Source Theatre, just to name a few. He is also the founding member of several pan-cultural musical groups including the Kailin Yong Peace Project, NuMundo, Y Quartet, the Lost Tribe of Pulau Gypsy, the Qilin Group and the PLUS Trio.
Kailin currently teaches at Lasalle College Of The Arts, School Of The Arts (SOTA) and Dulwich College.
